Within this project we are investigating the use of ferromagnetic sensor arrays to create novel user interface systems. We have developed a number of prototype systems and created a range of applications for use with the sensor array. We are currently exploring the use of the device for creative expression, particularly as an electronic music interface. This work has been done in collaboration with Jon Hook from the Culture Lab, Newcastle University.
